Abstract: This report contains edited transcripts of the discussions held in Stanford's Computer Science problem solving course, CS304, during winter quarter 1989. Since the topics span a large range of ideas in computer science, and since most of the important research paradigms and programming paradigms were touched on during the discussions, these notes may be of interest to graduate students of computer science at other universities, as well as to their professors and to professional people in the "real world." The present report is the eighth in a series of such transcripts, continuing the tradition established in STAN-CS-77-606 (Michael J. Clancy, 1977), STAN-CS-79-707 (Chris Van Wyk, 1979), STAN-CS-81-863 (Allan A. Miller, 1981), STAN-CS-83-989 (Joseph S. Weening, 1983), STAN-CS-83-990 (John D. Hobby, 1983), STAN-CS-85-1055 (Ramsey W. Haddad, 1985) and STAN-CS-87-1154 (Tomas G. Rokicki, 1987).
